A CRASH involving a car and a lorry caused police to close one lane of a major street this morning.

The collision, which happened around 8am, left the two vehicles heavily damaged and officers were forced to move them.

Police blocked a lane of Topp Way (A673) between the junctions with Higher Bridge Street and St Peters Way.

The closure caused long delays for commuters although the ambulance service has confirmed that nobody was hurt in the crash.
